DC: Cocoon


imagine
that our bodies
are a cocoon
a sacred nest
for our heart
a protective

nurturing
safe haven
for our hearts to flourish 
within

i know
our hearts are but one of our physical organs
that live in our cocoon
yet
our hearts
are also spiritually wise and a link to more
than our physical existence

our bodies a cocoon
for our sacred heart

~

thank you dear  Patrice for hosting us
with an inspiring theme:

this is also my 20th face for 29 faces
even though it is a partial face

  2. I really love this!

    It's for me also near your post of the little angel wrapped in the wings, sitting on a trunk.

    Yes, dear Tammie and friends, we have the possibility and duty to shelter our heart, doing good blessing things with the craft of a loving sensitive empathic heart.

  14. i'll second that thought; and as i'm reading your words, and all of the other participant's words.. we are all connected, intertwined... out beating hearts in our cocoony bodies.. so precious. n♥

  15. Yes! I love that thought too. The other day I was in yoga class led by my least favourite teacher, and she was going on in her strident voice about chakras. Sounded like this, "(Sanskrit word) is responsible for the highest (Sanskrit word) in our bodies and the (Sanskrit word) is to (Sanskrit word) so make sure you (Sanskrit word) the (Sanskrit word)..." ad infinitum! And I just sat listening to my heart feeling very whole while her harsh voice just bounced off of me. Now I know it was the soft cocoon of my body sheltering me. :D Big hugs
